    Love it
    I was expecting yet another horrible smelling harsh on hair developer when I purchased this to use with the Schwarzkopf metallics I had ordered. I had seen multiple comments that Schwarzkopf's color line actually did turn out far better with their own developer, so I purchased it expecting nothing except possibly better performance with their color line I was using. To my surprise, this developer not only is the gentlest on hair I've yet to use, the odor was hardly noticeable, and the results I got were gorgeous! I've yet to use it with any other color line, but it is well worth investong in!!!

    Essential When "Graduating" from the Salon to Home
    OK, I rarely ever in my life had enough money to get my hair done "right" (ie the way I envisioned it) at a Salon, and in all my years, only one guy at a place in New Orleans ever came close. So I graduated from SuperMarket Box bleach kits finally to Schwarkopf Ultra Lightening Powder and #40 developer after watching my talented hair stylist cousin do my own hair, my daughters, etc. After kinda mastering this, I wanted to add shades and tones as soon as I got the courage up to go to that Ultra light yellow color and add a White Blending toner. I may still not have it right, I know when you go to a good salon you pay for a lot of Hair Education, But good ones cost too much for me, and the personality match between stylist and styled is 20 x more important than that of me and my therapist. Maybe I should take the "volume " up one notch, idk, to get a truer tone of lilac or steel blue on my platinum hair. I know if I go too high, that any violet based tones I put in turn to bozo red, or is that because I'm using the too low developer? These are things you can at least research on a post forum like Behind the Chair.com. Don't let anyone shame you because you're willing to learn to do things for yourself WITH YOUR OWN HAIR!!! GO YE PIONEER! ONe thing is, no matter what I do, with Schwarzcopf I get compliments no matter what I've done to myself.

    I have been Schwarzkopf hair color for a long time and use 6% 20 volume crime developer. It does not matter if you use regular or developer with oil. Mix the colors as recommended by the manufacturer. One part developer and one part color. If you buy the Schwarzkopf color there is usually a small white sheet included that will explain the differences in10 volume developer 20 volume and 30 volume developer. for my 95% gray hair I always mix 1|1 color to developer and leave the mixture on the virgingrowth for 25 - 30 minutes and then pull the mixture through the old growth for a remaining 15 minutes. If you find that your hair fades too fast, add a darker color to your mix or color your entire head for a full 45 minutes. I have learner these suggestions by watching my hairdresser for years and the. By my own personal experiences for the last 10 years. going to the salon has becomeSO expensive and with a basic understanding of how hair color works you can devise a formula that works for you

    IS IGORA ROYAL DEVELOPER WORKS WITH IGORA ROYAL AND IGORA VIBRANCE ALSO?
    I know that the Igora Royal Developer works withIgora Royal. I am not sure if this developer works with Royal Vibrance because that is a special color series. In each box of Schwarzkopf color is a white manufacturers instruction sheet and that sheet will tell you the recommended developer and the recommended strength of developer. Personally I have never used the Viviance colors because I have really gray hair and the Viviance colors don't have as much color depth as my hair requires

    You mix the color and developer at a 1 to 1 ratio. I don't know how many milliliters is in a half tube. But, iff you use 60 milliliters of color from the tube, mix in 60 milliliters of developer. That is a good amount for coloring my roots.

I read the answers from other questions but none of them match my question and so confusing answers. I've no knowledge of this products so please give me a simple answer. Again my question is which developer should I order to use with IGORA ROYAL black 1-0 To cover my root grey hair to be black. Thank you so much and looking forward to hear the answer (Can't wait to order and use this products) PAT
    I also have very dark hair with grey root, I've been having 100% long lasting grey coverage with the Igora Royal developer 9% / 30 vol. I like playing with the colors (darker, lighter), but always the same developer. This is the one for grey coverage, about the color what change is the amount you will use, but they have it very well instructed with the hair color.

    I'm not a hairdresser so this is just my opinion, but if you don't have gray or have very little, have you considered using a demi permanent just to get a little copper back into your hair? I only use 20 vol to cover gray. Otherwise I use the lower vol with permanent color or use a demi. The Colorance line is great but, again, will not really cover gray but only tone it. Good luck!

    If you want to keep it the same as in the color, use the Schwarzkopf Igora Developer- 3% / 10 vol. But if you want to make it slightly darker or you have a lot of greys go for the Igora Developer 6% / 20 vol. Whichever you use you will be happy with it. I love Igora and it does not damage your hair.

    Most times if you are depositing color you would want to go with the 6%. Especially if you are needing any grey coverage.

    I use the 6% with the Igora Royal 7-887. It is a much bolder red. My hair is dark grey. It is my understanding that using 3% will work the same. It make take a little longer to process the color, but is more gentle on the hair. I feel, based on my experience and the advice of my hairdresser, either is fine. As long as you use the Schwarzkopf Color Save Shampoo that is sulfate free and the Schwarzkopf Conditioner you can not go wrong. I have found all of the Schwarzkopf products to be excellent. I don't recommend or use anything but Schwarzkopf.

    My hairdresser used Igora Royal permanent color cream 6-1 on me and to keep costs down, I would like to attempt doing it myself but have no idea which developer I need? Also noticed she used something called INEBRYA ICE CREAM PROFESSIONAL HAIR COLOURING CREAMS (WITH ALOE VERA AND LINSEED OIL). I didn't want to ask but could that have been used to do my highlights?
    The developer to use if you are doing a lighter color is Schwarzkopf Igora Royal Developer - 6% / 20 Vo. It works pretty good with Igora permanent color. Also, the INEBRYA ICE CREAM PROFESSIONAL HAIR COLOURING CREAMS usually are used to do highlights. To save money I do my color at home and every three months get a hairdresser to do my highlights. My hair is in good condition just by using the Igora colors.

    40% is going to lift from 3-4 shades of color. What is your base color level and are you lightening at all? If your trying to cover gray only you need a 10-20vol dev and a neutral shade mixed with your regular color. Me, I do a level 9-1 ash to neutralize red/orange/gold. Then mix 50% 10-0 neutral to cover my gray which give me a natural looking highlight.

    Is this product okay to use straight from the bottle onto my hair? What is the recommended time before shampooing? I use Clairoxide 20 now, straight from the bottle and leave it on my hair for 15 maximum minutes. Then I shampoo and rinse. Is your product very similar and to be used as I use the Clairoxide?
    Nope, you cannot use this product straight from the bottle. You need to mix it with the Igora Royal color first (sold in tubes). Also you will need a measuring cup with small measurements since the ratio of developer to the color must be precisely 1:1. The standard tube of the Igora color is 60 ml, so you would need a measuring cup with 60 ml measurement. The recommended time to leave the developer+color on the hair is about 30-40 min. The instructions are printed on the color box. And I heard that it is not a good idea to mix a developer of one brand with the color from another. Hope it helped.
